K. and crew havo been nt work during tho week in nn effort to pick up tho cable nnd find where the break is. Yesterday they were grappling for it in nine fathoms of water backward and forward be tween Scarborough head nnd the middle saud.s. The cable is imbedded deep, and progress so far has been anything but satisfactory. A Port Townsend ppecial iyp. Capt Ros3, of the bark Lizzie Williams, just arrived, sighted a wreck in lon gitude 127 off Columbia river. Only a portion of tho vessel was visible nnd her name could not bo made out.

A MayGeld man says to tho San Jose, Cal., Herald: Dnring tho reoent rise in tho creeks and slonghs the salmon ran up in largo numbers, and many of them found their way over tho flooded lands. Tho water is now subsiding, and hundreds ot salmon havo been left in the field, whore tho water is still a few inches deep just enough to keep them nlivo. Ah a conseqnenco the boys are having lots of fun. The case of James N. Green, accus ed of timber cutting on public lands, has been dismissed in tho United States circuit court on n motion ot the district nttorney.

Ho cut and sold the timber to some mill men, bnt afterwards filed on tho land and bought it. The secretary of the interior has requested the attorney-general to in stitute a joint civil suit against the Northern Pacifio Railway company and J. C.

Oregon's claim for 8390,820.10. mon ey paid on account of militnry forces in Oregon during the rebellion has been disallowed. GovernorPcnnoyer expresses great disappointment that the claim, which first secretary Ear hart, then secretary McBride, and himself, on his recent trip east, had urged before the government, has been disallowed. Tho governor does not know of any remedy for the Btate to resort to, since it appeared that the claim's disposal had been definitely determined upon by the department. Senator Dolph has presented in the U. S. senate, a letter from James G. Swan' of tho fisherv commission lo cated at Port Townsend. W. T. Mr. Swan says in his letter that fishermen of New England, who are now with their fleets in Pugot sound, demand as a right that they bo permitted to pursue their honorable bnsiness, iu the American waters ot tho northern Pacific, Behring sea and tho Arctic, without being treated as criminals and hunted down and imprisoned by special revenue cutters of the United States. Give books, bnt do not lend. To lend a book is to bid it farewell for ever. It is the law and tho prophets. It is not in tho least that the borrow er does not intend to retnrn it. He does intend to. There is not nn act or thought of his life which is not en tirely honorable, nnd he would never dream of defrauding or nunoying any one. Hut there is a special fato that prevails over the borrowed book. It is under a spall. It is no more amen able to ordinary human laws. Tho moment it is lent it is onchantcd, and forever it must so remain. United States fish commissioner Stone will return from the vicinity of Spokano Falls next week and take charge of the hatchery on the Olaok amas river. Tho eggs nnd fish from the Clacknmns hatchery will only bo used for tho Colnmbin river. Tho agreement under which tho Clacka mas hatchery was turned over to tho United States was that its product should bo used solely for the benefit of tho Columbia river. There is noth ing, however, to prevent commission er McDonald from furnishing eggs or fish to California from the hatchery on the McClond river. At the Misbawaka school election on the 15th inst., A. Furtado received nt the postoffice n letter from French Prairie with 860 in it, in greenbacks. He used 825 of the money and with out reading it laid it down on n desk to sign n school clerk's bond as direc tor, and then, forgetting all about his letter, went home. After nwhile ho thought ho wonld read his letter nnd remembered leaving it at the school house. He went back to the school house bright nnd early tho next morn ing, but couldn't find the envelope nor the letter, nor the 835 that he had hnd in his inside pocket, and has not found them up to last account. Ho doesn't miud tho mouey. but is mighty sorry that he didn't got ,i chance to read the letter. A well known hor.se-trniner and jockey named Harry Smiley left Port land last Tuesday for Victoria, to which place he bought a first-class ticket, no left the train at Taconia, went to a drug store whero he pur chased three ounces of laudanum, registered at the Empire honso and retired at onco to hi.s room. At 10 o'clock his frightfully heavy brcnth ingwas heard in the hnlls and caused an investigation. Ho was found in sensible from the effects of the opiate he had taken, and nn honr later he died. In his memorandum book tho following was scrawled: "I cannot keep straight. Good-by; my name is Harry Smiley. Please send what money yon find hero to Mr. O. Smiley, Portland, Oregon." In his pocket was a letter from John Fngan, Castle Rock, W. T., nddro3scd to Ilarry Smiley, Portland, Oregon. Gov. Semple, of Washington terri tory, wants the sheriffs of Pacific Wahkiaknm and Cowlitz counties to use their utmost endeavors to enforce the fishery laws. He says that by co operation of officers on both sides ot tho river, there ought to be no ser ious difficulty in the way. All mon interested in this great iudustry, who suspend operations willingly duriug the clo30 season, should be callod up on to render assistance to the officers ot the law in bringing violators of it to justice. "I respectfully suggest that it would bo well for tho sheriffs to make it known in some pnblio way that those who disregard tho statutes will probably find it difficult to avoid detection nnd punishment. The great importance of this industry, and tho danger it is in of being ex tinguished by improvident methods, is shown in my roport to tho interior department for 1837." The Portlnnd ranrkot nt nresont is glutted with sturpcon nnd yesterday's steamer for California took 20,000 ttis to San Francisco. Tho reason for tho large supply is due, says tho Neics, to the fact that n fish dealer from Chicago was horo for two months during the winter nnd took all the fish that was offered at 2 cents per pound. Tho fish was pr served by a" secret process which kept it fresh, and shipped to Chicago by the carload, where it was smoked nnd Eold readily at n profit. The re sult of this, added to tho local demand wa3 that sturgeon fishing became a very profitable occupation and nntim berjembarked in it. When the frozen lakes and rivers ot the east thawed out so that fishing could bs resumed, the Chicago man left for home as he could then obtain sturgeon nearer nome. xno jrosuit was that tons of sturgoon were thrown on the Portland market. One day thirty tons arrived in this city, where there is but little demand. Aho large surplus is now being shipped to San Franoiseo. but tho venture rarely pays anything more tnan tue express charges. Un der the circumstances it is thought that n number ot sturgeon fishermen win retire trom tno business. A Complimentary-Reception. The Indies committee of the Y. M. C.
